Super Meat Boy is super fun! Too bad I've only played the demo.

Age of Zombies is also super fun. Got it last night and I'm halfway through already. Hopefully I'll finish it before my ADD kicks in.

Exploring Carnia in Strange Journey. Glad I got back into this. I also started a new game in The Dark Spire and a new party, just so I could test out the classic mode. I kinda like it, but the music's not as good. It's also tougher to tell what I'm highlighting so I end up choosing the wrong thing.=(

I still need to beat Dark Spire. I made it to the 6th floor, then stopped playing.

If you haven't yet good luck trying to figure out how to unlock the subclasses without a guide. It's pretty much impossible to figure out on your own.

I've gotten halfway through on my first playthrough, and I can honestly say much of this game is impossible without a guide. Luckily I have no quams about using one. It's better than being frustrated, IMO.

Oh, I see. Well, I can't say I disagree, but...I also feel as if it doesn't really make a difference one way or another. You know?

I suppose not. But it's still annoying. It's like the kid who eats too much of his favorite cake then complains it doesn't taste good anymore, like it's somehow the cake's fault. No, it's still the same cake. He was just stupid and ate too much.

If I could comprehend that analogy (seriously, everyone I know either paces themselves or eats their favorite food every day and never gets sick of it!), I'm sure I would agree. I know part of the reason I don't like Pokemon is because I beat it too many times. Still, I don't enjoy it anymore because it doesn't provide what I look for in an RPG. The same with The Legend of Zelda - I never beat any Zelda game, but I now find it lacking compared to RPGs, plus I no longer care for the boring puzzles that I always needed a guide book for...not to mention there's never any story until Wind Waker and Twilight Princess (which I still kinda like). Much of what I did like about them are done better in other games.

True, but again, most people aren't posting things because they're tired of it. They're posting them because they don't like them anymore, mostly because of problems in the game that they were able to ignore the first time around.

Which is why my stance is controversial. I'm basically saying the problem isn't the game. It's the gamer.

Really? Then...I'm confused, what's wrong with that? Or rather how is that in any way a confusion? (Now I'm really confused...)

Haha, it's cool. There's nothing wrong with getting tired with a games, especially if you play them too much. It's natural and totally expected. But you don't have to stop liking them just because you're tired of it. That's my point.

My point was that you are confusing "enjoy it anymore" with "play it anymore."
Believe it or not, sometimes when you play a game enough, they lose the charm they once had.

Ding ding ding ding ding! We have a winner. I'm glad we agree.

^Aw, how nice.=)

Got my Bottom kicked in Blaster Master. I love that game, but it is hard, and I'm outta practice. Meanwhile I'm really into Strange Journey, I think I'm going to finish off Carnia tonight so I can move on to the next area.

This wasn't actually what I was angling at even if I mentioned "overplay" in my own post. I was more looking for "I loved this game otherwise but it has some huge freaking problem and now I can't enjoy it anymore."

My point was that you are confusing "enjoy it anymore" with "play it anymore."

If I don't want to play a game anymore, it's probably because I'm not enjoying it. That's why I listed Pokemon and Zelda, for instance - every time I play those games, I fall asleep because they're boring as hell. I don't know what it is I liked about them before, but I don't like them anymore. Believe it or not, sometimes when you play a game enough, they lose the charm they once had. Sometimes your tastes change as you get older. Sometimes you notice the flaws you didn't notice the first time around.

From my perspective, I don't see how anyone here is associating finishing a game with enjoying them. I think a lot of people here just really aren't enjoying those games anymore.

...I don't know what to say about this. Discuss?

Did he seriously graffiti "V" on the wall like V for Vendetta?
1392  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Non-Random Battles worse than Random Battles? on: December 17, 2010, 06:38:02 PM
When they're done well, Like in Persona 3, they're strategic and provide an interesting challenge while giving you the choice whether or not you should fight or run. When they're done wrong, they end up being an annoyance. I know in one dungeon in Star Ocean: The Last Hope, I fought many enemies thanks to slim corridors and bad camera positions. On the plus side I got a lot of exp, on the negative side, I was wandering around that one dungeon 50 times, just trying to find one item. I think it goes without saying that I was more than a little annoyed. In Tales of Symphonia, on the other hand, I had gotten so good at avoiding enemies that I could go a whole dungeon without fighting more than one or two groups of enemies, and was fighting every boss sorely underleveled, so I had to leave the dungeon and grind to make up for it. Of course that's easy when it just means running into every enemy you see. Usually I'd be good in about 30 to 45 minutes.

So yeah, when done wrong, they can be just as annoying as random battles, but when done right, they're by far the best option.

Pokemon - why don't like it? It hasn't changed enough in 10+ years. Still, it was the game that defined my childhood, so it would be nice to relive the memories, but memories is all I'll ever have in this case.

Digimon World series - why don't I like them? They're terrible games. Terrible, broken, idiotically designed games. But still, they were the games I spent a lot of my free time with as a kid.

If it counts: The Legend of Zelda series - They're like Pokemon in that it hasn't changed too much, except unlike Pokemon, it has a bunch of clones proving that the formula can be done better. But still, it would be nice if I could enjoy it like I did when I was a kid, before I realized how stale it was.


Other than that, I've only been playing RPGs for 3 years, so it'll be a while before I run into more games that I don't really like anymore.
1394  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: Have you "RPG'd yourself out of other genres"? on: December 17, 2010, 01:30:42 PM
Yeah, I only play for small chunks at a time, though in my case it's usually 'cause of my short attention span.=P
1395  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Golden Sun Dark Dawn in 10 days on: December 17, 2010, 12:11:52 PM
Its strange, I think alot of whats said here is very valid, but I never seem to, at least not to myself, think about such things.  Like for instance I got Assassins Creed 2 from Gamefly earlier, and my biggest issue, and the reason im sending it back for something else, is because I hated the whole climbing/jumping control aspect.  It was just that one thing that drove me completely insane.  Same with FFXIII, I just hated the battle system they used, and it really ruined it for me..especially once things got hard (at least for me).  But then you have games like this, where I am completely enjoying myself.  I might find a few of the lines to be a bit cheesy here and there, but overall its nothing like the above examples that affects me.  I ended up keeping Golden Sun since with my coupon and discount I got it for just over 20 bucks, but I think I would have been completely happy paying the full amount for it. 

Yeah, everyone has that game where it works perfectly for them, even though others can come up with a number of complaints. I know I did not like the first Golden Sun, but whenever I explain my reasonings for fans of the game, they can never seem to get it. It was perfect in their eyes. I can't blame them, since most of my problems with it also exist in Breath of Fire and Final Fantasy 4, yet I liked those games for some reason I can't explain. Just hit the right notes I guess.

Now, I haven't played The DS Golden Sun, but it sounds like it would be a bit more enjoyable. It's still sounds too easy, but easy games have a place in my collection, too, I suppose, especially now that Chrono Trigger and M&L: Partners in Time have been beaten.

And speaking of Partners in Time, that's my game where I think it's perfect even though others are always pointing out flaws. I just didn't have any problems with it, it did everything I wanted it to do and more and I enjoyed every second of it.

And I see we both disliked the battle system in Final Fantasy XIII. Interesting.
